This Week in Anime: Konosuba, Golden Kamuy, and More…

Sorry, this is coming out a day late, I was feeling a bit distracted and not really in a mood to write. Some painful memories recently got stirred up again and it put me in a really weird place, but now I am ok again. Anyway, on to this week’s news

New Anime

This Week in Anime: 11-30-17/Quicky Update

Hey, Friendos!

So first thing: Update. This was originally going to be a video post because I got a lot of feedback from people telling me that they liked the talk show format, including Chizurue and Visual Joint, so thank you to them for the feedback. The reason that the video post is not happening this week is that between working on other posts and school this week, I’m trying to budget my time well. Also, my phone with the finished product died, and it won’t charge because the charging port won’t work, meaning I have no access to it. So there’s that.

Anyway, here’s this weeks news.
